The Photo Restoration service trusted by the trade

Do you have treasured photographs or documents that have suffered the ravages of time? Are they torn, faded, creased, discoloured or damaged? Don't despair! I can restore them to their former glory.

Leave everything to me

Old photographs and documents are very precious to their owners - often there is only one copy in existence. That's why my very first step is to make a high resolution digital master copy from your original. The original is then placed in a pH neutral protective wallet for safe keeping.

Once restored, your original photos are returned together with a CD or DVD containing the restored 'master' digital images. Reference prints of each restored image can be supplied on request.

I can supply prints and enlargements from your restored photos - up to poster size. (see below for prices). I can also transform your photos into stunning, ready-to-hang 'Box' frame canvas pictures *

*UK customers only
